In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to select whether you would like to receive information from us, or from trusted third parties. We will probably do this by asking you to opt-in to receiving relevant marketing campaigns about CodeGen’s technology, applications or AI initiatives. You will always have the option to easily unsubscribe from such campaigns if you withdraw your consent.

    You may choose to provide us with personal information if, for example, you: contact us with an enquiry; register on a web site powered by CodeGen; forward an item to a friend; purchase an item; fill out a survey or other form with your personal information included; ask us to provide you with information; post information to public areas of our websites; or take advantage of a promotion.

    There are some circumstances, such as when we are satisfying our obligations under a contract with you, administering a transaction requested by you, or as required by law, where we will be able to contact you without requiring any specific opt-in.

    3. Use of personal information

    We may use personal information collected from you to provide specific services that you request, as well as to provide additional services that may be of interest. For example, we may use your personal information in the following ways:
